Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
EU countries have 'no concrete plans' to phase out fossil fuel subsidies: report
Only nine EU countries have reiterated their commitment to end fossil fuel subsidies as part of their national plans, according to the analysis by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), Friends of the Earth Netherlands, and Climate Action Network (CAN) Europe.
Worse, five EU countries - the UK, Germany, Greece, Poland, and Slovenia - are even looking to introduce new subsidies by 2030, many of which are labelled as 'low-carbon transition support'. This includes a Greek scheme aimed at replacing diesel boilers with gas-fired ones and funding for liquefied natural gas transportation in Poland, the researchers found.
